Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Organic Photovoltaic Materials Markets: 2009 - 2016" report to their offering.
The major goal of this report is to analyze and quantify the markets for OPV materials of all kinds. The report includes discussions of both "pure" OPV (using small molecules and primarily polymers) and hybrid approaches to OPV (notably dye sensitive cells). Coverage includes the latest R&D and commercialization efforts in the area of electrodes, encapsulation and substrates, as well as the core absorber layers,
This report also discusses the products and strategies of the key players and companies discussed comprise both firms that are specifically focused on OPV materials (e.g., Plextronics) and those that focus on the panels area, but have strong IP in the materials space (e.g., Konarka.) We also provide a roadmap for improvements in OPV lifetimes, materials prices, efficiencies and other factors.
This report focuses on developments at the materials level that are impacting the commercialization of OPV and will be invaluable to strategic planners and marketing managers at materials firms of all kinds, electronics companies, display and lighting firms and, of course, the developers of OPV technology itself.
